Bucephalus (GER)


Colt, 3 yrs
Sire: Soldier Hollow (GER)
Dam: Batya (IRE)
Trainer: Ed Walker

This is a mid-May foal, a yearling colt by Soldier Hollow. 

The family has a lot of fast two years olds, but it has also come to prominence this year with Accidental Agent.

The mares have rarely been bred to such a stout influence as Soldier Hollow. Whipper is 50% as a broodmare sire and similarly, few of his daughters have been bred to stamina influences, though Wadigor was a very useful, if unfulfilled talent by Champs Elysees.

This is a notably immature horse, (he is only fifteen months old.) His sire was a very small horse, but has been leading stallion in Germany for some time, siring first and second in this year's Deutsches Derby. Follow this link to the page that advertises the stallion www.soldier-hollow.de/soldier-hollow/en_soldier_hollow.php  - you will be struck by how closely the blaze on this horse corresponds to his sire's. 

He has already strenthened up considerably since he has been broken in and is now having a bit of time off prior to going to his trainer's yard in November.

A half sister to the mare had a Galileo colt sell for £300,000 in Ireland this year.
